LAX Caters To Mobile Travelers
Samsung Mobile, a division of Samsung Telecommunications America, and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), which operates LAX and other area airports, said Wednesday that they are rolling out new, free charging stations targeted at travelers at Los Angeles International Airport. The charging stations are being installed by JCDecaux, the airport's advertising contractor, and are being sponsored by Samsung as part of an advertising initiative. The charging stations include fifty-one, pole-like stations in Terminal 1 through Terminal 8, and also include Tom Bradley International terminal. Each of the stations include up to four outlets. The new charging stations will be a welcome sight to business travelers at the airport. LAX previously had very few accessible power outlets available within its terminals.
